(thanks to the Scripture Engagement website for making me aware of this one)
Bible Society Australia have brought out a collection of essays on the ways in which Generation Z are engaging with the Bible. Here’s some blurb and the contents list:
Did you know:
Only 4 per cent of young people read the Bible daily and 7 out of 10 have never read it.
Young people are ten times more likely to read the Bible if they are involved in a group which encourages them to do so.
Only 1 in 100 youth will pick up the Bible out of curiosity or interest.
Find out how you can engage young people with the Bible; what’s working and what isn’t, and to get that other 99 to pick up a Bible. Bible Society’s Adrian Blenkinsop has pulled together a collection of essays for youth engagement with the Bible to help them, and their youth leaders, keep the faith.
Ch1. Bible engagement amongst Australian young people – Philip Hughes
Ch2. From the coal face – Adrian Blenkinsop
